Quote | Kirstin Ellis
On signing her National Letter-of-Intent to play Soccer and run Track & Field at SMWC...
"I would like to thank my Mom and Dad. Every meet no matter what the weather one of them would always be there to support me. They are the only voices I hear during meets yelling at me. My Dad would always send some message to me to make me push myself harder. My coaches pushed me and taught me my technique but my parents taught me how to push through anything and come out better."
Quote | Coach Zach Whitkanack
On the Ellis commitment...
"I am happy to announce the signing of Kirstin Ellis. Kirstin will be competing in both cross country and track & field. Kirstin will help add depth to our new incoming group of sprinters. I look forward to working with Kirstin next fall"
Will work towards a degree in Personal Health Training with a concentration in Nutrition
